I did not know what to expect when I booked a room at Arrecifes, but I know where I'll stay if I ever return to Recife. This hostel was absolutely fantastic. The people are friendly. Everything was perfectly clean. The beach was only a few blocks away and Recife has a beautiful ocean-side walk there. The breakfast was terrific. The... More
